Do You Ask or Tell Him ?

Your SO/Dh......like if you want to go get a new dress...do you tell him you're going to go get one, or do you ask him if you can go get one?  

If  you want new towels....do you go get them or ask his opinion?

I just go get what I need whenever I need it. No need to ask or tell anyone.

I would usually say "I was thinking we needed or I needed to get xyz, figured I'd go..." 

Then he'd give his opinion and I'd go because he never cared.

A dress? I surprise him with it. Towels, I'd convince him they're necessary, because that means I'd be getting rid of old ones. Usually I don't even mention im going shopping unless he calls while I'm out.

I would tell him that we need something and then go get it.

I get a sort of "allowance" from my husband, for my personal use. If I want something that is more than $60, I ask him first. We are on a very tight budget and he is the sole provider, so I don't think there's anything wrong with us checking with each other before we buy something that isn't a necessity.

Neither. I just buy it. Unless it's a major expense we both buy what we like. If its a major expense then we discuss it.

Depends on the price over 100 I ask mainly bc he travels for work so I want to make sure he doesn't need that money for something too. But under 100 I just get it.
